this devastating tornado in joplin, missouri, following two different floods in the same time period and i said we can't deal with this on our own, we need others to come in and help others just like we'll help them when they have a big problem and that's what this supplemental should be doing. it's my view, madam president, that the $60 billion supplemental is not the best way to deal with this at this time. i'd rather see us deal with this when we know more about the money that we need to spend, but we've got a march 27 deadline when the continuing resolution runs out. one of the questions i'd have is how much money do we need between now and then? there are others who might say, and i could possibly be persuaded, let's at least go until the end of the fiscal year. how much money do we need between now and september 30? but this goes beyond that. and when we had the katrina disaster a few years ago, we did at least three supplementals for katrina. eventually we may spend more than $60.4 billion, but my view would be there are probably better ways to approach this than spending -- than appropriat

in its wake. we did the same thing when tornadoes hit joplin, missouri, and tuscaloosa, alabama. we stand by families in times of need. it's the job of the federal government to keep our families and communities safe. it's what we do. and it's that gratitude we have when others come to our side in that moment of great need that draws this body together. so what i am urging most is that we all do count our blessings during these holidays. we do look to what we have and know that there are many families who are going without without a warm home, without that loved one who's been lost. and we know from this disaster, children were taken. grandparents were taken. husband and wives were lost. and so the least we can do is help a community rebuild from that devastation. it starts with homes. now we saw so much loss in our state. we worked out that we needed about $17 billion to rebuild the homes in new york, and we asked for a community development block grant to cover that. now our colleagues on the other side of the aisle will have a substitute bill, a substitute bill that will cut funding dr
